A 33-year-old man faces charges after he crashed his truck into a police cruiser Sunday and then tried to take an officer’s service weapon, Cleveland police said.

According to local reports, Michael Williams crashed his pickup truck into a police cruiser that had been parked to block off the scene of an accident. The officer suffered a concussion.

Then, a second officer confronted Williams and instructed him to exit his truck. But then Williams began reaching around the inside of his cab, which forced the officer to respond. There was a brief struggle, but officers eventually got Williams out of the truck. However, before he was handcuffed, he pulled on an officer’s duty belt and service weapon.

Williams is charged with aggravated robbery and assault on a police officer.
